Where can I begin? This novel took me back to when I read my first Perri Forrest novel, Revolving Doors and fell completely in love with her ability to tell a story. And although I've read each and every one of Ms. Forrest's novels since her first, Rapture might well and truly be my favorite since Revolving Doors.

Hunter "Rush" Cambridge is an alpha male without being an asshole. He's tough, takes no crap from anyone and is fiercely protective of those he loves and cares for. I really appreciated

Perri Forrest. Woman, this book has left me speechless. Rapture is a must read. It kept me turning pages from beginning to end. We meet Alika, a woman who, like many people out there, attempted to find love on the internet. Acting on faith, Alika decides to fly to a new city and meet up with a man she thought she could trust. It doesn't take long for her discover that Curtis is a woman's worst nightmare. Alika finds a way to escape, and it is then that she meets Rush. Seeing that she has nothing ...more

Alpha man indeed

I gave this book 5 stars. Reading about Mr. Hunter Michael Cambridge/Rush, was enough to give more than five stars. Oh, and I'm all for book 2. I want to hear more about Alika's back story, and I want to see if Rush's relationship with his sister will be repaired. The reason I gave this story 5 stars, (besides Rush), lol, is because the storyline was pretty good, and it kept me entertained. Grammatical errors were few, and I was very drawn to the main characters and their steamy

"RAPTURE" A BWWM Alpha Male Romance by Perri Forrester

My Thoughts....

What a story in that you will keep your attention seeing what is coming next. As I first started reading I was truly wondering about Alika Collins in all that she had gone through. Why, was she too naive to know what she should and should not do with online dates? Even though

Never In a Rush!

Oh my goodness, I loved this book from the beginning to the end. I so can't wait to read what will happen next in Rapture 2. Alika was a good girl that didn't have anyone to just have her back, and love was what she really needed most. She thought she found that in Curtis, but he just wanted to used her. So after hurting her like no real man should, she ran for her life and ended up hiding in a back seat of a car. Hunter aka Rush was a good guy that was on the road to having ever

I just loved reading this story by Perri Forrest. It was creative and kept me hooked from the first few pages.

Alika & Rush have a beautiful love story to tell. Although they met under some painful circumstances for Alika, I love how she was able to push past the hurt & pain and move on with her life with Rush. You won't be disappointed when you read.

Ready for the next one Perri Forrest!

Didn't see the ending coming at all. The best Perri Forrest book I've read to date. Rapture 2 I can't wait!

Alika Collins thinks she is on a dead end street in her life. She hopes her salvation will come in meeting a guy she has been communicating with on an online dating site. This meeting definitely does not go as she planned or does it go as Curtis the man she meets planned it. Running, in a strange city, she finds herself in a parking garage, finds a car with unlocked doors and climbs in the back seat to hide just long enough to be safe. Her true salvation gets into the car and drives her to his h ...more

Amazing chemistry/Phenomenal couple!

I have read this book previously and it is still as awesome as it was the first time! Rush and Alika's relationship takes you on a ride from the first page to the last. As a reader, you want this dynamic couple to win and for love to continue to triumph over diversity.

I'm late to the Rapture party...

But I am enjoying myself. Now I'm on to the next one. I really like Alina and Rush together and it didn't take long for them to trust each other. Good job.

Loved it

Rush was a loyal friend, even to those that don't deserve it. He and Alika found each other at the appropriate time in their lives. Looking forward to seeing how he reconciles with his until now unknown child.

Good Stuff

This was a story that starts with a bang and ends with one as well.I love the two main characters in this story ,they are two people who want so much better for themselves and they find it in each other.The writer brings the story along at a pace you get to enjoy.This is also a story that deals with a few dark subjects and the writer handles them so very well.This is good reading and you are going to want to read this and search for the next installment.

Here we go... so I struggled between a 3.5 and 4... after really thinking about it I think I am going to stick with the 3.5.. I will explain of course.

I think at about the 55% mark something slightly changed for me in the book... Now things were going as expected.. actually it was a little predictable but it didn't bother me too much.. I think it was the change in Alika.. In the beginning she was so hmmm what's the right words.. charming I want to say, kind of classy with a edge and very person

The 3 stars is for the author.

This is potentially a good story that was not told very well. In addition, I did not enjoy this book. It was an incredibly negative story and even the relationship between the characters was insufficient to lift the story. In addition, I did not believe or felt the relationship between the characters. I wished the author would show the relationship rather tell me about the relationship. Showing the relationship relationship allows the reader to become engaged with t

Incredible story and plot twist!!

Rush aka Hunter Cambridge is what some would call a bad boy. He's charming, blunt, a businessman, a risk taker, and not at all afraid to protect the ones he loves. He's all male and definitely not lacking in the good looks department. He meets Alika, who happened to get into some serious trouble upon moving from Las Vegas to California to be with someone she thought she could trust. Being the protector he is, he takes her in and things change drastically for the

Wasn't Rapturous

Let me start by saying that while I feel the author has true talent and a very good creative mind I just was not that into the romance between Rush and Alika. Their relationship was obviously contrived and forced. She seemed desperate and was waaay too needy. Especially for someone with marketable job skills and money in their wallet. And why she didn't at least ,report, the sexual assault was never once addressed. How she responded afterwards is individual, as the author pointed

Well, well, well..the ending wasn't what I expected, but I figured there had to be a reason. Alika, took a leap of faith, and made a trip to visit a guy who she met online. We'll that didn't end up as well as she hoped, as a matter of fact, it ended badly..very badly. But her luck changed when she found a car, and it belonged to Rush. Rush, typical Alpha, found Alika and decided he was going to keep her. While starting a love affair, Rush is also dealing with his work, family and friendship issu ...more

In Rapture: an Alpha Male Romance, author Perri Forrest does the DAMN thing in this story. We are in for one Hella Ride. Alika and Rush have chemistry from the start! Alika come to LA believing that she has met her "dream man" through and online dating site. Little does she know that things are going to go left really quick. Curtis is not what he seem to be and Alika is in way over her head. She manages to escape from Curtis and winds up in the back of Rush's car.

Great story

This was my first read of Perri Forest and I will say she did a great job. RUSH WAS ALPHA and caring all at the right times. I assumed Alika just was hoping against hope Curtis was not a jerk but he was a sleaze and I'm happy she got away. She had a strong inner voice that every woman could benefit from. RUSH's family was pitiful I l I keep Jamie until the end but their dad throw her right under the bus. Hopefully part 2 won't take long .

Awesome Story

I loved this book from beginning to end. With everything Alika had experienced before meeting Rush, her "Knight in Shining Armour", she was a really tough cookie! She was resilient and able to adjust to the choice of a new and better life. I , like that she was able to open up and trust again after tragedy.
And, Rush is a genuinely honest man with lots of integrity. Alika and Rush had strong, juicy, chemistry, Whew!
A believable read! Bravo! Awesome!

Not bad

I was waiting for the rapture part...I hope the journey that Rush has to take to find his daughter doesn't break he and Alika apart...the story seems a little rushed but I suspect the author has her reasons. I also hopes that Bart storyline can be expanded and he can find a better mate than Jillian. Hopefully the next book will live up to its title.

Rape is a big factor for me in a book and this author just went over it like it was not a big deal. I couldn't comprehend how one minute the girl was raped and the next she's with rush. To me she didn't grow as a character.

Rush was confusing was he an baseball player or a bad boy. The story needed more for me.

Sexy, Edgy, Passion. This book was everything. Alika and Rush's chemistry was so mesmerizing. Their overall ability to tame one another just make the reading that much more amazing. But and I do But that Bomb Jacob drop over Rush had me in awe. That father and that rotten sister...some family. If I didn't know any better I would think that...ummm nevermind I'll just see how part 2 plays out.
